Thank you: Just reading your post and seeing your photo of the river brought me relief from a very stressful couple of days. Somehow it helped me access memories of being in nature and feeling its soothing, healing power. Beautiful writing. I'm so glad you're doing this!
Thanks, Amy, for being so encouraging. In your last comment you talked about the question of whether to mentally challenge negative emotions or accept them (not your words). I relate to this and hope to post about it soon. I hope you're not so stressed today.
I can so relate to this post. I find that simply 'being' in nature has an incredible effect on my stress levels. the other week I'd had a most frustrating day. that evening I took my dogs to a walkway by a tree-lined stream. When I sat and simply watched the trees move in the slight breeze, focused on the subtle differences in the colour and shape of their leaves and drank in their loveliness it was like I'd taken a magic drug! All the stress lifted and was replaced with a wonderful, soothing calm. I find there's nothing like being mindful of nature to decrease my stress.
Thanks Kaye. It's nice to have you visit my blog and comment. Much appreciated.
